pet scratches on laminate?


So I just moved into a "luxury" apartment building that just finished construction. I moved in about a month ago and didn't have to pay for a pet deposit because my 40 pound doodle is an ESA.

Now I've lived in 2 other building prior and never had this kind of issue before with my dog leaving soft scratches from running quickly to the door, excited for someone coming over, or just playing with herself. But I have noticed on this particular laminate she is leaving slight scratches on the flooring that is noticeable in certain lighting.

Again, I've never had this issue in the past as most of the buildings I've been in had laminate flooring as its cheaper than hardwood. i have tried just seeing if they are surface level and can be mopped out but that didn't work. can anyone offer suggestions on how I go about resolving this issue when it comes to moving out? as it's a newer building, I know they are going to want the unit to be in a somewhat pristine condition upon move out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - I have attached a picture for reference. Thanks so much!

Kind or surprised that you are seeing that on a laminate floor, I would try one of the auto black molding cleaners like black magic, it's a silicon based cleaner and it might hide the scratch but it wont fix.

I would get the landlord involved right away, maybe there's some mitigation in that this flooring was supposed to stand up to dogs and therefore would be subject to a warranty or something....
